'If Orion Books had just found and published one of the lost Shakespeare plays...I would not have been more excited than when I learnt of the publication of 14 previously untranslated Asterix stories in a new book called ASTERIX AND THE CLASS ACT...Anthea Bell and Derek Hockridge, Asterix's translators since the very beginning, have made great books into eternal flames' -- Giles Coren THE TIMES 'One of the most appealing features of the Asterix books is their ingenious, twisting plotlines, filled with scheming villains and hapless fools...Asterix and the Class Act might appeal more to Asterix diehards than to general fans; but it is an entertaining addition to the canon' -- Toby Lichtig TIMES LITERARY SUPPLEMENT 'Asterix is a true hero of global proportions' COLCHESTER EVENING GAZETTE Here's a chance to dip into some new fun with the roast boar-loving French action men -- Marion McMullen NUNEATON EVE TELEGRAPH 'LIke all the best children's books, Asterix works on several levels. More than a footnote, this addition to the series is worthy of its lineage' EVERYTHING FRANCE
